Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Oakley

Me and my fiance are acquiring property in Oakley. My property lawyer is not on the bank approved list. Is it possible for me to continue with my Oakley conveyancing solicitor notwithstanding that they are excluded from the bank approved list?

You must instruct a conveyancer to complete the legal work required if you take out a mortgage to purchase your property. The conveyancing practitioner will carry out all the essential legal checks on the property, make sure that you’re registered as proprietor and ensure that all the required mortgage documentation is in order. One may instruct a Oakley conveyancer of your choice. However, if the property lawyer appointed is not on the bank solicitor panel further costs will be levied as separate legal representation will be required by them. Lender panel applications may be submitted, so if your lawyer has not in the past applied for membership they should take the chance to apply.

I have been told that property searches are the primary reason for stalling in Oakley conveyancing transactions. Is this right?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) released conclusions of research by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not feature amongst the top 10 causes of hindrances in the conveyancing process. Local searches are unlikely to feature in any holding up conveyancing in Oakley.

About to purchase a new build flat in Oakley. Conveyancing is daunting at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build legal work.

Here are examples of a few leasehold new build enquiries that you may expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Oakley

    Please supply evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry. If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier?

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a quick, no chain conveyancing. Oakley is where the house is located. What do you suggest?

Flying freeholds in Oakley are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Oakley you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds very carefully. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Oakley may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.

How do I use your search tool to find a conveyancing lawyer in Oakley on the approved list for my bank?

First select a mortgage company such as HSBC Bank, Skipton Building Society or Britannia then choose your location for example Oakley. Conveyancing organisations in Oakley and nationally will then be listed.

Am in the process of purchasing my first home in Oakley. Conveyancing practitioner has been selected. The financial consultant suggested that a survey is not appropriate as the house is only 20 yrs old.

As the bare minimum you need a Home Buyer's Report. As the premises is over 10 years old the property will not come with a warranty, so you don't want to take a risk. Where a property of this age shows no signs of defects a Home Buyer's report could be enough. They will highlight any obvious issues and suggest additional investigation where relevant. If there are any signs of material issues seek a full Building Survey from the beginning.
